Gerald returned to Arkansas for his seventh season of eligibility, but was only able to appear in nine games and record five tackles for the year. His Razorback career is one that has been sidelined by various injuries, which ended his seasons in 2018 and 2021.

Hampton transferred to Fayetteville after spending his first four seasons at Arkansas State, and had a very solid one year with the Razorbacks. He appeared in every game – starting in three – and totaled 25 tackles, two sacks and 3.5 total tackles.

Pool finished his storied Razorback career following the 2022 season after four spectacular seasons. His 441 career tackles were enough to eclipse Tony Bua as the program’s all-time leading tackler. He was voted to the First Team All-SEC and Third Team All-American in 2021 by Phil Steele. He missed the final two games of the 2022 season due to hip surgery and has been rehabbing from that injury since.

Sanders was the best player and leader of the Arkansas defense in 2022 after transferring from Alabama in the off-season. He recorded 103 total tackles and 10 sacks on the year. He spent the majority of the season leading the SEC in sacks and ultimately finished tied with his former Alabama teammate, Will Anderson. Sanders is currently projected to be a late first round or early-to-mid second round pick in the NFL Draft.


NFL Combine: Did not participate in on-field activities but did complete the interview portion with all 32 teams.

Bates transferred from Texas State and spent his lone season as the Razorbacks’ kickoff specialist. He earned First-Team All-SEC honors from coaches and led the SEC with an average of 64.47 yards per kickoff.

Spaight will be the oldest former Razorback at Pro Day on Wednesday, having last played for Arkansas in the 2014 season. He had a very decorated collegiate career in Fayetteville and had one of the best senior seasons in recent memory. He led the SEC with 128 tackles that year and was awarded as a consensus First Team All-SEC selection.

Spaight was a fifth-round selection by the Washington Commanders in the 2015 NFL Draft and he spent three seasons with them. He recorded 28 tackles in 2016 and a career-high 75 tackles n 2017 for the Commanders.

Silver was last seen at Arkansas during the 2021 season, where he received a selection to Phil Steele’s First Team All-SEC. After his collegiate career, he was invited to and participated in both Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine Game, but went undrafted and unsigned last summer. He eventually would get an invite to attend the Minnesota Vikings minicamp last year but things didn’t pan out. He last had a workout with the Chicago Bears this past January, but again did not receive an opportunity.
